At the same time, implementing AppGuard into the cybersecurity stack provides significant cost savings across the entire IT and cybersecurity cost center.
“ThinkOn is an outstanding partner for us to continue our global expansion. They are a critical leader in their industry and in the Canadian market, which will be critical to expanding our global footprint.

The Canadian government has developed a new cybersecurity strategy to bolster Canada’s ability to combat cybercrime and safeguard Canadians digital privacy, security, and economy. Over $500 million is planned to be invested in cybersecurity in the next five years. This is the single largest investment in cybersecurity ever made by the Canadian government. The strategy notes that cybercrime costs Canada over $3 billion a year, but that internationally, the annual cost is expected to rise to $6 trillion by 2021.
